Installation and maintenance of stamped concrete are very easy and inexpensive. If imitation is the sincerest way to flatter, then stamped concrete flatters as no one else can. With its uncanny ability to closely duplicate, in both color and texture, popular flooring materials such as paver, brick, slate, and flagstone, just to name a few.

Still, stamped concrete goes beyond honoring these traditional favorites. It surpasses its qualities in many ways, offering greater versatility, economy, long-term results, and ease of installation.

Steps to install and stamp concrete

Pour the concrete slab

After compacting the land, the formwork is placed and the levels are moved. Follow traditional procedures like strength and thickness. Even out the concrete surface with the help of a float or trowel so that it is smooth.

Using accelerators for setting concrete is not recommended as it may not allow time to complete the stamped concrete procedure.

Note: Some additives can affect the color

Hardener color

Allow the concrete to sweat. Once the water has disappeared from the surface and the concrete is in a plastic state, apply the first coat of hardener by hand. Two coats are required to achieve uniform coloring, although some light colors may require up to a third coat. Using a steel trowel, blend the color into the surface. It should cover the entire surface and obtain a uniform coloring.

Release agent

Apply the release agent manually on the concrete slab, spraying it and covering the hardener color. Make sure to evenly cover the surface.

Before applying it, it is recommended to open the release agent bag and stir it by hand so that it comes into contact with the air. Remember to protect adjacent areas such as pools, fountains, etc.

Mold for stamped concrete

Wait for the concrete to be ready to stamp, this is when you can get on without sinking but leaving the mark well marked.

The molds are always placed in a horizontal position, trying to keep them as close together as possible to avoid a double scratch on the finish.

When the concrete is harder, the tamper should be used, always stepping on the mold to be struck so that it does not move when hitting it.

Wash stamped concrete

After at least 24 hours of stamping, the concrete will be dry swept, then the concrete is pressure washed to remove excess release agent. It is normal that after washing there is a release agent in the nozzles and deep parts of the mold, this helps us to give a double tone effect to the final color.


The sealer will be applied after 3 days when the concrete is completely free of moisture. For its application, you can use a roller, brush, or sprinkler.

Make sure to cover the entire area, this will help protect the floor against future stains and enhance the color of your concrete.
